Colne in Lancashire is the little town which boasts not one, but three theatres, including Colne Muni, The Little Theatre Colne and Pendle Hippodrome. You’ll find something exciting going on most weeks from musicals, plays, live music or visiting artists and each venue specialises in different types of shows. Transformations are afoot, as the three theatres were awarded a multi million pound grant from the Government’s Levelling Up Fund. The Muni is going green with lots of retrofitted eco measures being added, while The Hippodrome is extending into the Derby Arms next door and finally, The Little Theatre won’t be quite so little any more, as it is extending into its courtyard.
Pendle Hippodrome Theatre
Originally opened in 1914 as a cine-variety venue and now run by volunteers since 1986 after an extensive 8 year renovation, the Pendle Hippodrome Theatre is host to musicals, plays, concerts, fairs and much more throughout the year from our own Theatre Company and Youth Theatre as well as many other organisations in the local community. In June 2015 the Pendle Hippodrome Theatre was awarded The Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service. This is the highest award given to local volunteer groups across the UK to recognise outstanding work in their communities.
